Jonie's Sizzlers and Roast: Really Cheap Meals in Cebu

Cebu is foodie heaven. And as economic theory states, costs can be high where there is high demand. The good thing about Cebu though is that despite that heavy demand for restaurants, there is also no shortage of supply. That means, cost is somehow balanced and Cebu dining need not be expensive. Sure there are quite a number of places that are expensive. But there are also many that offer great value for your buck. There's the typical hole in the wall places. But you can find cheap food even in malls.

Jonie's Flavored Chicken

While not exactly a much talked about restaurant, Jonie's Sizzlers and Roast offers meals with very affordable prices. Jonie's is located at the upper ground floor of SM City Cebu. They specialize in flavored roast chicken. I must say there's pretty good flavor in their roast chicken.

One good thing about the Jonie's Sizzlers and Roast menu is that while they specialize in flavored roast chicken, they serve a variety of meats as well. And they have vegetarian options too. The menu has pork dishes, fish and seafood dishes, chicken, and beef. Here are some that we tried:

Grilled Tangigue 

Tangigue or mackerel is one of my favorite fish food along with salmon and bangus (milkfish). I love tangigue either as a fish steak, fried or pan-seared, or grilled. When I want to eat healthier at Jonie's, I order the grilled tangigue.

Pork Steak

Pork is my favorite meat and I love eating pork in whatever way it is cooked. Pork steak is a good way to enjoy pork and they have it on the menu at Jonie's. They have good flavor on this one and if it were to improve, the meat can be more tender to the bite.

Pork Belly

Yet another pork dish at Jonie's is their grilled pork belly. The sweet blend sauce really goes well with this one. Then again, the meat is kinda hard. I guess they did not thaw it enough before they cooked it.
